Urinary nicotine concentrations in cigarette and pipe smokers.

Abstract:

Urinary concentrations of nicotine were studied in men who did not smoke (27) and in men who smoked cigarettes only (145) or pipes only (48).

These values were standardised for urinary pH and creatinine concentration to allow for the fact that nicotine excretion is influenced by the ac...
